OUR MISSION

To minimise avoidable ill-health by making patient access to care effortless

Screening programmes, vaccinations, and other primary care-led public health appointments are nationally failing to meet their desired targets. This failure means there is a significant opportunity left on the table to improve and save lives by catching and treating disease early.

Appt (abbr. appointment) was born from NHS front-line experience in response to this problem. Hector, Appt's founder, worked in a GP surgery and identified a core reason that public health programmes are failing. He saw first-hand the difficulties practices faced to 'call and recall' patients into appointments that help them to live longer and healthier lives.

Our first product replaces the difficult, manual call/recall processes currently used in primary care with one that is automated, effortless, and accessible. 

Using innovative digital technology, we want to take away the work of inviting patients into appointments that help them. Whereas, our patient-centred design takes away the barriers to booking for patients, so uptake rates are high. The result? A healthier population, more easily reached practice targets and a stress-free primary care environment.

WE BELIEVE

That preventative healthcare can lead to a sustainable healthcare system and a population that leads longer and healthier lives.


The opportunity to deliver health and economic value from preventative interventions is huge. Indeed, 84% of deaths in the UK were from a cause considered preventable (ONS, 2017). Solving non-communicable diseases, heart problems, obesity, smoking, and mental health are now considered key to the long term sustainability of the NHS. Yet still, public health activity is underfunded and thus disempowered. Join our community by following us on social media and signing up to our newsletter below.

OUR VALUES

Living a healthy life is possible for everyone. With the right support, applied in the right way, we can reduce health inequalities at the same time.

Appt is a social enterprise and part of that is tackling health inequalities. For this reason, we have designed to make preventative health programmes more inclusive and accessible to everyone. By supporting local care providers to deliver existing prevention programmes in this way, we can empower them to engage more patients from all walks of life. Read more about how strengthening the role of ill-health prevention tackles inequalities in the Marmot Review (2010).
